Finally got my new wheels!

So as a lot of you know, I have always loved the 08-10 18" EX-L V6 wheels and was shopping everywhere for a good set with like-new tires. Well, I finally picked up a pair off of Val (Jullia) yesterday and got them put on today! They are wrapped in brand new Conti ExtremeContact DWS 235/45R18 tires. I measured and each wheel is still at 10/32 - brand new is 11/32

Pics of my '07 EX-L V6 17" wheels wrapped in brand new Michelin Primacy MXM4 215/50R17 tires:





Old VS. New







...and the new

Very nice, Ben! Come spring time, additional lowering should make a world of difference

CLEAN. Are you on stock suspension? Thought you were on a mild drop.

I agree! Right now I have it set at a 2 finger gap in front & 1 in back - I just want to have some space in the wheel wells so the snow can escape as I know what it's like to have snow trapped in the wells (used to drive on very low springs that wasn't height adjustable)

Well I just got back from Dover, DE - was out there for the weekend visiting my sis (plus she's closer to NYC than me so less of a trip back "home" Thursday night). The Conti tires ride just as nice as the Michelin tires I have on the 9-spokes! Quiet, comfortable and nice grip. I didn't get to try them in any snow, though, as the roads in the mountains were cleaned. Bummer. Time will tell I guess.

Thanks! For the retro I went with the TSX w/ clear lens projectors, Mercedes E-55 shrouds and painted the interior bezel graphite pearl to match the car but left the orange reflector for more of that OEM look

P.S. I actually bought the car in Chicago!

That's okay I got the pleasure of spending 2 hours in good ol' NYC traffic haha Hey, you don't live until you drive in NY! An experience of a lifetime for sure. Luckily I was able to sneak over and take the lower level of the G.W. bridge - no trucks allowed - which freed it up some. Then I had to deal with the IDIOTS on I-95 South :smh:

All I have to say is thank God for Tein making some top quality coils! 295 was a nightmare of pot holes, dips, curves, etc. going into the city! Any bad strut or low quality coil would've bottomed out, no doubt. haha
